    True, J-Street is not the main problem, but neither are the settlements. Eliminate the settlements, and you are back to 1949: the conflict is still there, as it was then. It is not a conflict about land, but about national legitimacy: We accept theirs; the Arabs by and large do not accept ours. Fools like the J-Streeters, who are keen on appeasement, will gladly continue to oppose Israel after it kowtows to Fatah, because doing so massages their self-righteous egos, and allows them (or so they think) an entry ticket into a fictitious "progressive" community of non-Jews with whom they actually identify--Ahavat Israel be damned! "Ahavah" here doesn't mean "agreement with policy"; it means "primary identification" with your own people, not with its enemies. J-street is a problem of assimilation, not so much of human rights or Israeli policy, else the J-streeters would be protesting and constantly attacking Hamas and Fatah, and Iran, not just Israel.
